Wednesday, 25 June 2008

Bad news guys =[ Sky have been complete idiots (massive surprise) and cancelled our internet access a week early. They're so dippy, my other half quite clearly told them not to cancel it until the 1st of July!! I will try to update this week if I can get wifi somewhere before I start work. I will try though, Jon's iPhone is not ideal for updating and resizing pictures. Please don't forget to vote on the poll (scroll down) so I know which cities you'd like me to feature local artists from.

Red, White, and Blue Vintage Button Pin - $25 from Callooh Callay

Susan of Callooh Callay left me a message on Etsy linking me over to her store. I absolutely adore these vintage buttons, they would like great if you had a few of them pinned together on a jumper or bag.

Susan says:
"My jewelry is made with vintage buttons and other materials, such as old clock parts or orphaned earrings. A lot of my buttons are from the 30s and 40s, old celluloid and bakelite and other early plastics, but I also love using the Victorian black glass buttons, Czech glass, mother of pearl, later funky plastic buttons from the 60s and 70s, and even some wood and vegetable ivory. The fun is in playing around with them and finding the two or three that look as though they were made for each other."

What is Desktoptopia?
Desktoptopia is packed with features that make it simple to automatically update your monitor with our designer desktops as often as you like.

I only discovered Desktoptopia the other day when I got my new MacBook and had a browse through new freeware. Basically it is a program you download that changes your desktop wallpaper to really nice designs every 60 seconds, or half an hour, or what ever you like. It's available for Mac and PC.. did I mention that it's FREEware? I've featured three of my favourite designs that have been a little treat every time I've minimized my windows.

News - Guest post + Design Show Liverpool

Guest post coming at midday from Jenny over at Indie Quarter. Don't forget, it's lovely!

Also, some news regarding the Design Show Liverpool which runs from the 19th-22nd June at the Contemporary Urban Centre. Unfortunately I work full time in a new job and live the wrong end of the country so there is no way I could get up there. Luckily I had an email today from Gemma Barton (featured last friday.. scroll down!) saying that she is an exhibtor and will be there for the full 4 days! Gemma and DRPD are exhibiting together and are launching two new products at the show and are even up for the a couple of awards. David Roberts is the product designer and Gemma produces the graphics to face the products. Anyway, Gemma has offered to do a guest blog covering the show, which would be amazing, thank you very much!

P.S. A little reminder on submissions. If you're an artist, or have seen some really nice work lately give me a shout and perhaps we can feature it =] lolamaeonline@googlemail.com

Please note..

Just so you know; I work odd shifts (14:00 - 22:00) so that's why the posts sometimes come at odd times of the day/night. I keep forgetting the schedule post feature on blogger. Apologies if you've checked the site during the day and haven't seen an update. I'll start scheduling posts for around 9AM or early afternoon if there are two posts for one day.

Chipmunk Coin Purse-Made of Salvaged Banner - $8

Here's some gorgeous little coin purses from birdversusbird via Etsy. They are made of salvaged banner material left over from her sign shop in Oakland to save it going to the landfill! I think this makes it even sweeter in a weird eco-warrior 'look at me, my purse is saving the world' kind of way. I want one, I don't know which one though.

Overview of the first week!

Hello again, I hope you all had a good weekend.

This first week has been great, I've seen a fair few people have been coming back all week which is fantastic news! Jenny over at Indie Quarter had added Lola-Mae to her blog roll and should hopefully be doing a guest blog some time this week. Kerry over at Kerrybeary said that the blog is "totally bitchin" and she'll be adding it to her weekly reads (she also said that there are 10 Panda and Bamboo prints left). As has Christina over at Studiolyon and Print & Pattern may be linking back to us in a little shout out to a fellow UK blog!

It's been good, thank you every that has visited.

Panda and Bamboo gocco print $12

I adore this Panda and Bamboo gocco print by Kerrbeary, I don't really know why, it's just adorable. I'm going to get one for my new house on August 1st, so you should buy your print quickly because there is only a limited edition of 25 and I'm not sure how many are left, I will ask though. I love all these designs to be honest, maybe I'll get all 3.

Gemma Barton

Terra-list - £175

What a privilege! I already have artists emailing me with submissions and telling me they think Lola-Mae Online shows a lot of potential (thanks Gemma)! Anyway, enough modesty, welcome to the world of Gemma Barton, the new resident at Mooch; a gallery opening this month in Northern Quarter, Manchester. She has a really nice style with fantastic use of contrast and colour. There is another 5 prints available from Mooch, go take a look!

Blue Bunny Print - $20

There's lovely stuff coming from Christina Lyon (Tampa, FL) over at Studiolyon on Etsy. The patterns in the two examples are so pretty and delicate, they must have taken hours. You should most certainly go look at her other designs (there's plenty of them in a few different styles) so there is loads to browse through! Shipping is only $5 dollars and crazy cheap if you combine postage on a few prints.

Green Apple Print - $16

Northern Lights Poster - $17

I came across ISO50 the other day and I have to say Scott Hansen has got to be one of my favourite new found artists! The prints are so colourful and flow perfectly. I want them all, seriously, I do, unfortunately I could never afford them all so I'll have to just choose a few to put up in my living room. Shipping at only $10.15 isn't to bad either. Head over to ISO50's shop and try to choose which one's you want.

Lovely typography videos
Wednesday, 4 June 2008

Below are three lovely typography videos I found on YouTube, I hope you'll find them as stunning as I did. I think the first one is my favourite, it's a pretty tough call though. The bottom one is insane, it freaked me out a little bit, but somehow made me need to watch through to the end..

"A video of two persons drawing the alphabet.
Hand 1 Gradus W. Wouters, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, 2003

Monday, 2 June 2008

Hello and welcome to Lola-Mae, the online, UK based design archive. Showcasing new talent and new releases in 2D design, typography, ceramics, gadgets and loads more. It mainly follows designers in the UK but also features worldwide artists that ship internationally at affordable prices.

I'm a huge fan of design blogs (check out the links to the left to visit my favourites) but a majority of them are based in America and i'm always a bit disappointed when some of the designers they feature either don't ship to the UK or charge crazy prices just to post it over here! I'm sure I'm not the only one.

If you have any ideas new designs are artists you think should be featured feel free to send me an email at lolamaeonline@googlemail.com

P.S. : This layout was originally made over at Gecko and Fly and is called Andreas05. It's so lovely , simple and fresh like a blog should be! Head over there and browse through them templates on their website there is some really lovely designs. Kudos to them!
